Prickley Pear Country Bicycle

I received Prickley Pear's Country Bicycle image in yesterday's mail...and I couldn't wait to color it up....the thought of spring/summer coming...so fun! I made two cards, each with their own feel. The first card uses a softer springy color scheme. I also used images from the Clearly Beautiful Flowers set. I stamped the flower and sentiment on some pastel designer paper scraps. I used the Scalloped Circle die for this card. There is also a Flowers die available for those who don't like fussing cutting them!
For my second card I went with more of a bold, summery patriotic theme. I stamped the image on a panel that I had punched with the Martha Stewart Punch Around The Page punches.


Dont' forget, if you have some Prickley Pear goodness in your stamp collections, make a card and post the link on the Prickley Pear blog for a chance to be featured win some more!

OMG this is sooooo gorgeous. Absolutely love that stamp, love how you colored the images and how you embellished. What a great idea to use that music line on the top right corner. Love that detail!!
